5:29pm
confidence here are sobering statistics to have 1400 small business owners surveyed for the chamber of commerce only 20% think america's best days are ahead of us, 80% don't plan to hire next year, leaving little optimism the jobless rate stuck above 9% will go down any time soon. jessica johnson running her family's new york security business, says it is not easy to be an employer right now. >> it is much harder than i thought it would be even though i grew up in the business knowing the day today operations, what was required, number of checks you have to write and responsibility for employees was overwhelming when i first came in. >> her company is hiring uncertainty about taxregulations about the new health care bill keeps them from expanding more. >> there is so much uncertainty and what the potential costs and expenses will be we don't even know how to plan long term
5:30pm
beyond 2012. >> with the economy stuck in neutral, uncertainty and lack of sales are the main hold up to companies bringing more people onboard. tom donohue, ceo of the u.s. chamber of commerce says there are several things capitol hill can do to get america back in gear some you have heard before others are a bit more controversial like hiking the gas tax for the first time in 18 years, donohue says the revenue has dwindled and many people could be put to work rebuilding our infrastructure. >> under these circumstances it is not unreasonable to suggest that we phase in a modest increase in the gas tax overtime. >> and stop sending tax dollars to keep people in homes they can't afford. donohue said stopping up forclosures fast is the best way to help the housing market recover. right next to uncertainty the survey found business owners are most concerned by america's debt the chamber strongly believes we can't cut the

credit line yet. >> congress needs to raise the debt ceiling and must do so without delay. it is an unfortunate reality, but it must be done. failure to do so would have grave consequences, for main street businesses and every family in this country. >> among the chambers main points they would like to see stream lining, regulations they would like to see more investment in domestic energy sources and also like to see congress pass three pending free trade agreements the chamber believes we should do more to promote u.s. travel and tourism to bring international customers to spend some of their cash here. >> sounds like a good plan. thanks mel. debate over who will take the reigns in dcs department of rehabilitation services will come down to the wire they will vote on it tomorrow there are questions tonight about the man up for a job acting director neil stanley, live from the
5:32pm
wilson building, councilman jim grey ma'am thank you for being with us -- graham thank you for being with us tonight. >> reporter: delighted. >> why is neil stanley not the man for the job? >> reporter: because the jury is out and the jury in this case is an investigation by the department of human resources which is already taken serious action, it has taken away the dyrs hiring authority for one year spending employees without -- suspending employees without pay because of the way the superintendent was hired, now, he is involved -- >> okay councilman graham we are having trouble hearing you i was trying to adjust my ifb here clearly we are having audio issues we will fix this and come back to you because this is an important issue about the department of rehabilitation services we want to get to the bottom of this we

we want to get back to that debate over who will take the reigns over dcs department of services and go back out live to councilman jim graham.
5:38pm
councilman, give us once again in a nutshell so our viewers can hear you why you don't think neil stanley the acting director is the guy to take over the reigns permanently. >> reporter: well, we wonder about his experience with juvenile justice issues, but in addition, there is an investigation pending right now, by the dc department of human resources, into what roll he played for a very special treatment in terms to have hiring of the new superintendent of new beginnings, which is a secure facility. >> you are alleging that the job qualifications were edited for him to hire some body he knew socially is that what the allegations are? >> i think captain bains has a good background but the question is does he have it for this job and the description was edited as a direct result of fitting the pd to the candidates background this is the subject of a lawsuit,
5:39pm
subject of an investigation. we should wait on this confirmation until we know for sure what has happened >> i understand the dc department of human resources was supposed to get back to you last month with the result of this investigation that has not happened? >> well, they have given me preliminary recommendations, and that just makes me more suspicious because as a preliminary recommendation they will take away hiring authority, for one year and suspend employees there without pay so that tells me something very serious is happening. >> let's get to the bottom line here the committee on human services voted last friday you sit on that committee correct? >> chairman. >> voted last friday to disprove of mayor grey's nomination of neil stanley why wouldn't have that vote in committee have put all this to rest? >> well, because it has to go before the full council, and there is no question about that, but you know, he -- we
5:40pm
really need this information in order to take the kind of informed action that the council should take. >> can't you just vote tomorrow, the council vote tomorrow and then it is a done deal? does majority of the council believe this guy should not be the director? >> i don't know but i do know this, we don't have the information from this investigation and i am very uneasy about putting this issue before the council without it. >> all right the vote happens tomorrow and jim graham will look to follow up. appreciate you joining us thank you. >> thank you. everything is bigger in texas, lone star newborn no exception he tipped the scale at 16 pounds, 1 ounce birth on fly day he is about 2 feet -- friday he is about 2 feet long his mom delivered him via c section. doctors thought he would weigh around 12-poundings right now he is in neo- natal intensive
5:41pm
care but should go home next week. >> a kid a little bigger than that took the ballpark by storm seattle before the 4th of july holiday and now the video has gone viral. take a look. >> isn't he good? this little guy is 7 years old and does he ever know how to move to michael jackson's famous thriller dance from the video knows every move to that dance which by the way is about 20 years older than he is. so clearly he has been catching up on youtube and on the rocking out to the ole oldies that would be the oldies. >> he is good any way. >> that is good. hot and steamy, humid had enough of the summer weather. >> any relief from the heat? sue is on deck with your forecast

5:46pm

5:47pm
national and dallas and bwi, these could be broken tomorrow this real hot tuesday, there is a heat advisory issued noon until 8 see the counties in orange effected. it does not include louden or frederick and points north and west we thing you will get a bit of cloud cover and per happen as cooling thunderstorm out there, per happen it is rest of us will feel like 105 degrees you know what it already feels like that in many spots this afternoon 93 degrees in the district, a little cooler near water annapolis getting a break 88 degrees, fredericks burg 95 and haggers burg 95 and feels like 104 dc 116 for fredericks burg prepare for this and maybe temperatures a little higher than this, what the feels like will be for your body could be a couple degrees warmer than that be aware of that. a chance for a shower or thunderstorm we have only had a
5:48pm
couple tiny cells trying to pop up check out this huge complex we are watching come flu western pennsylvania diving down -- through western pin sylvania and diving down to the top. high lands could see an isolated storm and one for the rest of us depending what this cluster does more likely to sink to the south and west join us tonight at 10 we will let you know what is going on with that our future cast is picking up on that complex shows a couple showers coming through late tonight we run into 11:00 p.m. perhaps the activity is over but can't rule it out early tomorrow morning a bit of a left over instability and a little trigger in the atmosphere again tomorrow afternoon not showing a lot with our future cast tomorrow afternoon but we do believe the ingredients could be there for isolated scattered thunderstorms and showers and then again on wednesday, even as our front slips on through and brings in less humid air we may still pop a shower here and there but most of that would be west of dc and then after that, we are in for a number of days,
5:49pm
lots of sunshine and temperatures much more reasonable and closer to average. check out temperatures tonight though, a big deal, 76 arlington, 79 baltimore not a lot of relief, means we start on that real warm note tomorrow and check out the temperatures we think easily town 98 degrees -- easily up to 98 degrees some places could hit that century mark 97 warren on the, 98 alexandria and baltimore. a spotty shower here and there but isolated, best chance west and south, 77 degrees, tomorrow we expect to have a heat advisory again feeling like 105 degrees kicks in at noon, near record heat if not breaking those records with a thunderstorm possible 97 degrees. 8:00 a.m., 82 feeling like 88 degrees by noon we feel like 102 with temperature of 94 by 5:00 p.m. feels like 106 if not warmer. here is your 5 day forecast, where is the relief? check out wednesday we drop to 90, and that is a big deal because humidity should start
